ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has said Pakistan fully respects and is committed to all its constitutional and international obligations on human rights.
In a tweet on Monday, he regretted that PTI Chairman Imran Khan in his interviews with international media outlets is openly and deliberately misinforming local and foreign audiences by glib talk laced with fake news and plain misrepresentation.
He said Imran Khan’s expedient description of the post May 9 events as human rights abuses and stifling of the right to political protest is not only misleading but aimed at manipulating and swaying opinion makers outside the country.
Shehbaz Sharif said what Imran Khan’s party did on May 9 was a brazen attack on the State of Pakistan, with malafide intent and sinister objectives. No country in the world would tolerate such an attempt at destroying its integrity.
The Prime Minister assured that the culprits are being dealt with under the law and that he will ensure that no rights violations take place. He said every case will be dealt with due process under the law.
